Mets | Jacob deGrom continues excellent season

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:51:10 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom tossed eight scoreless innings to defeat the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, June 25, and improve to 5-1 with a 1.23 ERA in his last eight starts. DeGrom has struck out 63 hitters and walked only six during that stretch. He allowed four hits while striking out seven and walking none against the Brew Crew.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($8,000, 17.6% of cap) is one of the stronger starting pitchers you can choose from right now on FantasyScore when he toes the rubber, and matchups like the one today against Milwaukee are juicy. Paying up for him in the right matchups is worth every penny.

Padres | Tough matchup for Justin Upton Monday

Sun, 31 May 2015 19:45:19 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton has struck out in five of his nine at-bats against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom, who is scheduled to start against the Padres Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: The sample size isn't huge, but considering Upton ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) commands a big price tag at FantasyScore, his history with deGrom is enough to make you think twice about paying for his services Monday.

Mets | NY going to six-man rotation

Wed, 27 May 2015 12:15:04 -0700

The New York Mets will use a six-man pitching rotation throughout early to mid-August once SP Dillon Gee is added to the rotation. Gee will join SPs Jacob deGrom, Bartolo Colon, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jon Niese. The idea is to shave about 30 innings per pitcher and prevent so many arms from going over 200 innings in one season.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't a surprise. With such young arms as Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap), deGrom ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) and Syndergaard ($6,000, 12.0% of cap), the Mets are interested in preserving the health of pitchers. No pitcher will likely get two starts in a week, which could hurt in yearly leagues, but you will still get one start a week in FantasyScore.

Mets | Jacob deGrom strikes out nine

Tue, 26 May 2015 21:51:32 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed two runs on six hits in 7 1/3 innings against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, May 26. He also struck out nine batters during the game.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) has pitched very well throughout the season and has allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his 10 starts. deGrom is scheduled to face the San Diego Padres in his next start and could be a good option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Jacob deGrom overpowers Red Birds

Thu, 21 May 2015 15:20:22 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom had 11 strikeouts in eight dominant innings to beat the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, May 21, and he retired the final 23 hitters after a first-inning single. deGrom also battled through a tender hip and stiff shoulder that had bothered him recently. It was his fifth double-digit strikeout game and first since Sept. 21 of last year. He is now 10-1 with a 1.19 ERA in his last 12 starts at home, with a 1.50 ERA in 16 career games at Citi Field. deGrom went eight innings and allowed just the one hit while walking none Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) is a fine FantasyScore option every fifth day, but he's been much better at home this year than on the road (6.75 ERA, .302 batting average against). For now, you should be hesitant to use him on the road.

Mets | Jacob deGrom continues to struggle

Tue, 12 May 2015 05:17:50 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom dropped to 1-3 with a 5.64 earned run average this season following a 4-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom ($7,300, 14.6% of cap), last year's National League Rookie of the Year, may be hitting the dreaded sophomore slump. The best thing to do for now is avoid using him in certain matchups. He appeared to be a victim of the Wrigley Field wind, but it has not been a good start overall.

Mets | Jacob deGrom bounces back

Wed, 06 May 2015 22:13:29 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed a run, six hits and a walk with nine strikeouts over seven innings Wednesday, May 6, against the Baltimore Orioles in a win. He rebounded after allowed five runs in consecutive starts for the first time in his career.

Fantasy Tip: The quality start was deGrom's first since April 18 after a couple of hiccups. Give him one more start to show he is officially back before committing $7,300 (or 14.6% of cap) in FantasyScore.

Mets | Jacob deGrom pitches well at home

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:17:24 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom, who is 2-2 with a 2.96 ERA this year, is 7-0 with a 0.95 ERA in his last eight starts at home, and another win will give him the longest home winning streak by a Met since Johan Santana won nine straight decisions in 2008 and 2009. deGrom threw 13 1/3 scoreless innings in both of his starts at home this year. He's 0-1 with a 3.75 ERA in two career starts against the Washington Nationals, who he faces Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is coming off a rough outing on the road against the New York Yankees, and he's facing a Nats team that has rattled off more than 10 runs and 15 hits in each of the last two games. deGrom could do just fine, but he's not a slam dunk at FantasyScore.

Mets | Jacob deGrom starting Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 04:38:58 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom will start Monday, April 13, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) lost to the Washington Nationals last week despite giving up just two runs in six innings. He is 5-3 with a 1.70 ERA in games played at Citi Field, but the Phillies have hit the ball a bit better than anticipated. He may not be worth the start at this price.
